12mo. iv, 88pp. Age-toned, cardstock covers meant to resemble vellum with title and a color coat of arms on front cover. Yapp edges, which originally had ties to close the book. Ties missing. Dampstain to bottom of endpapers. Some soiling on top of pages 2 and 3. All 21 tipped-in color coats of arms are present. The city of Florence put up inscriptions from Dante's Commedia to mark all the places mentioned and all the sites where stood the houses of the families in the epic. The author arranges the inscriptions in the book chronologically, rather than topographically, and in doing so gives a concise history of Florence up to the time of Dante. An interesting revelation of what remains of the city of Florence as Dante knew it.
